Hayastan All-Armenian Fund to feature music videos of new songs during
Telethon 2011

Yerevan, May 19, 2011 - The Hayastan All-Armenian Fund invites Armenian
singers from across the globe to submit music videos of their new songs for
possible inclusion in the forthcoming Telethon 2011 program.

Seeking to promote the creation of original music in Armenia, Artsakh, and
the diaspora, the fund will premiere music videos of newly composed songs
during the 12-hour Thanksgiving-Day Telethon in November, in addition to
regular fund-related programming.


"This will present up-and-coming, as well as seasoned Armenian music artists
with a great opportunity to debut their work on a media platform watched by
a global audience," says Ara Vardanyan, executive director of the Hayastan
All-Armenian Fund. "Being broadcast internationally over and satellite as
well as the internet, the Telethon reaches millions on all continents and
has grown to become one of the Armenian people's most cherished cultural
events."

The final selection of submitted music videos will be made by the Telethon's
music-production team.

The submission guidelines are as follows:

1 Original, previously unpublished song videos may be submitted by singers
residing in Armenia, Artsakh, or the diaspora.
2 Although there are no limitations as to choice of language or theme,
preference will be given to patriotic compositions.
3 Song duration should not exceed four minutes.
4 Music videos should be produced in the HD format.
5 Submission deadline is October 1, 2011.
6 Only one submission per artist will be accepted.
7 Videos should be emailed to [email protected] "Telethon Video"
should be written in the subject heading and the artist's name, address, and
phone number should be stated in the message.
8 The Hayastan All-Armenian Fund will have no financial role in the making
of submitted videos.

For more information, interested artists may contact Telethon Music Producer
Stepan Partamian at [email protected]
